Thanks for checking out my gallery.
I've been doing Backgrounds, Visual Development and Art Direction for Disney, Dreamworks, Universal Studios and the animation industry since 1989. I worked in many small animation studios before joining Disney's Paris-based animation unit for three years, where I painted backgrounds for such animated films as "The Hunchback of Notre Dame", "Runaway Brain" and served as head of background for the 1995 feature, "A Goofy Movie".
Relocating to California in 1996, I continued my association with Disney, where I did painted backgrounds and concept artwork for "Dinosaur", "Hercules," "Tarzan", the Stravinsky Firebird finale for "Fantasia 2000" and "Treasure Planet". I also worked on Dreamworks' "Shark Tale" doing concept Artwork and paintings.
In 2004, I became Art Director, first on a CG animated short movie for Studio Arts in Los Angeles, then for the animated segment of Disney's live action/animation movie "Enchanted", and eventually for the CG feature film "9", produced by Tim Burton and directed by Shane Acker, for which I got an Annie Awards Nomination (the equivalent of the Academy Awards for Animation) in the category "Best Production Design for a Feature Production".
I worked for a few months as production designer on the upcoming movie "Heroes and Monsters" and as a visual development artist for Universal Studios on "Despicable Me".
I am currently working at Hasbro studios on the CG animated TV show "Transformers Prime" for which I won 2 Emmy Awards back to back in 2011 and 2012.
In parallel to my work in Animation, I have been developing my own paintings for Art Galleries. My inventory has almost entirely sold.
I now share my time between doing artwork and Martial Arts/Fitness (I have been in Martial Arts and Sports since the age of 13).
I live in Toluca Lake, California and frequently travel all over the world.
I am currently preparing my first art book.

Current Residence: North Hollywood, USA
Favourite style of art: Anything that has evolved into a true art form, and doesn't look like crap.

Thanks! :)
Hello Vacher. Please can you make the Darklands available as a print? It was the first artwork that drew me into your worlds. 
I am not going to say how beautiful your artworks are, cause you've heard it many times ... what I am going to say is that your works have more meaning to me in the sense that they transport me to worlds that I have felt I dreamt of. I felt that connection right away with Darklands and more and more with your other works. 

Great imagination sir. And thank you for your arts to the world.
